Secondary Academic Intervention Services

  • Academic Intervention Services  

    WHAT IS IT? 

    • A state-mandated program to assist students with the literacy skills and content area support necessary to meet graduation requirements. 

    WHO RECEIVES THESE SERVICES? 

    •  Students may qualify for AIS services based on several factors: 
      • Test scores from previous school years 
      • Report card grades and classroom performance 
      • Teacher Recommendation

    HOW ARE THESE SERVICES PROVIDED? 

    • Pull Out Service: Students attend AIS content-based literacy classes taught by the AIS teacher to support the writing process, reading comprehension, test-taking skills and homework completion. 
    • Push In-Service: Students are enrolled in classes where an AIS teacher pushes in to co-teach with the content area teacher. This allows extra literacy support to be infused into the core content.  

    DO STUDENTS RECEIVE A GRADE IN AIS? 

    • Students do not receive a separate grade for AIS; however, the support received should positively impact the core content grade and NYS Regents Exam score.
